Protecting Reagents

Protecting group reagents are used to attach protecting groups to reactive functional groups in building blocks and intermediates to prevent unwanted side reactions. In solid phase peptide synthesis, the amino acid building blocks have protecting groups on the alpha amine group and on any functional groups in the amino acid side chain. Some of the commonly used protecting group reagents for preparing amino acid derivatives suitable for peptide synthesis include:

These and other high quality protecting group reagents are available from AAPPTec in bulk as well as research quantities. For a quotation on bulk amounts, please email AAPPTec at or use the On-Line Quote Request.
